This week is all about prep work and statement pieces

Preparation is half the battle, and ahead of last weekend's Valentines fun I decided to take time out for a soak in the tub and use the Rituals energy bubbles featured below to give my skin the best possible care.

I have started using the Couleur Caramel Make-up base, a great start to your beauty prep. My buy of the week is the UD Gwen Stafani browbox and then finish your look with a ruby red lipstick.

This Spring you will see a surge in bold statement pieces, clashing colours and mixing textures.

The Jumpsuit is still a hot favourite as are the 3 quarter length culottes and the statement midi skirt.

If you can’t go bold with your clothes choices then add a statement necklace or suede fringed clutch as featured below.

Add a basic t-shirt to a bold midi skirt or a masculine Spring coat to your work wear wardrobe. The LK Bennett skirt below in my wish list!

What I bought and wore this week...

Every now and then I manage to find it in my budget for a visit to Massimo Dutti, I love their neutral style and tailoring.

However this jumpsuit is a great combination of good tailoring while making a statement! Ethnic print jumpsuit, a 2in1 outfit as far as I’m concerned, therefore justifiable! Massimo Dutti €99.95.

I bought this feminine double breasted blouse for my Nephews Christening, so a deserved treat!!! Massimo Dutti €59.95.
